Peshawar: FIR ordered against cops for illegally keeping woman in custody
PESHAWAR: A local court on Tuesday ordered the registration of a first information report (FIR) against an assistant superintendent of police (ASP) and a station house officer (SHO) for keeping a woman in illegal custody at a police station and subjecting her to violence.
Peshawar District and Sessions Judge Muftahuddin Khan accepted the petition of Azra, the wife of Sadullah, in which she requested that the court order the registration of a FIR against Peshawar ASP Hassan Waqas and Gulbahar SHO Zarwali Khan for keeping her in illegal custody. She alleged that the two had tortured her while keeping her in custody.
The petitioner stated that her husband was wanted by the police and that they had raided her house, and picked her up because her husband was not present there.
